Overview NP Dermatology specialists review recent guideline updates and incorporate new medication classes in this engaging infographic presentation. 1.0 CE and 1.0 RX. An estimated 18 million individuals in the U.S. have Atopic Dermatitis (AD), yet over 70% of patients report moderate to severe symptoms with ‘fair or poor’ overall health and significant impact of disease on quality of life. With new guidelines and new classes of drug therapies, NPs must be confident in their approach to diagnosis, treatment and patient education. AD is ranked the “most burdensome skin disorder” by the Global Burden of Disease Study with an estimated 18 million affected in the U.S. This includes 3% of adults and 20% of infants and children, and a financial burden of over $5 billion in 2015 with an additional near $30 billion in out-of-pocket expenses for adults alone.With new guidelines and new classes of drug therapies, NPs must be confident in their approach to diagnosis, treatment and patient education.
